Medicare and Chronic Care Management
We enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to provide you with comprehensive primary care. Medicare has identified the care of chronic health conditions as an important goal. Chronic conditions are ongoing medical problems that must be managed effectively in a partnership between the health care team and the patient to maintain the best possible health. Examples include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression, and others. Effective Jan. 1, 2015, federal regulations now enable Medicare to reimburse physicians for providing chronic care management services, with only a small $8 monthly co-pay to patients.
What is chronic care management?
A personalized care program your physician and primary care team will carefully monitor and provide comprehensive care for your chronic health conditions in a systematic way to supplement regular office visit care.
